Are you relaxing at home? Lucky you…
Happy Memorial Day!
If the weather is nice (it certainly is here) then I hope you can get out to a park or barbecue or picnic. Also be sure to get some nice relaxing time in at home, if you can. Unless your home is like one of those featured in this new study, Home Court Advantage: How the Building Industry Uses Forced Arbitration to Evade Accountability.
If that's your situation, I wouldn't blame you for staying away as long as you can.
I had the privilege of speaking with Michelle Rechtein, whose story is featured in the above report. The woman is a fighter. After speaking with her about her experience, no one can ever convince me that forced arbitration is fair, cost effective, voluntary, or any of the other lies we're told about it. Read the report. Or visit FairArbitrationNow's one-stop shop for more information about forced arbitration in the home building industry. And of course, you can browse TortDeform's archived posts on the issue, particularly those written by forced arbitration victim-turned-activist Jordan Fogal.
